link County has unfortunately now recorded its first death as a result of complications associated with the swine flu. A nineteen-year old Cheltenham woman succumbed to what is now known as the "2009 Novel Influenza A (H1N1) virus" during a visit to Florida last week. So, although this flu strain is no longer making newspaper headlines, we mustn't discount it.

SANTIAGO, July 12 (Xinhua) -- The death toll caused by the A/H1N1 flu in Chile reached 26, the country's Public Health Agency said on Sunday.

The latest death case was a 48-year-old man identified as Omar Bernardino Uribe Reyes, a resident in the southern city of Puerto Montt, said a statement of the agency.

Uribe had been hospitalized for 10 days at a clinic in Chile's capital after a medical center in Los Lagos, some 700 km south of Santiago, diagnosed his illness.

As of Saturday, 9,549 people have been infected with the A/H1N1 virus, 406 of them in serious condition, said the agency.

It also said that Chile has seen a sharp increase in the infection number in kids aged under five, which now accounted for some 14 percent of the total confirmed cases.

The most vulnerable age was those aged five to 19, accounting for half of the total, according to the

SAN JOSE, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Costa Rica confirmed the country's fifth death case caused by the A/H1N1 flu on Sunday.

The dead, a 25-year-old woman, was 22-week pregnant with a pair of twins, Costa Rican Deputy Health Minister Ana Morice told local media.

She miscarried a few hours before she died Saturday at a hospital in the capital, Morice said.

Costa Rica has confirmed 351 cases of flu infections so far, and the government was worried about the rising trend of spreading, said Morice, noting that the authorities would strengthen preventive measures consequently.

Costa Rica reported its first A/H1N1 flu death on May 9.

A Havelock North teenager with swine flu is fighting for life in Starship Children's Hospital but will need a miracle to survive, her parents say.

Claudia Teague, a Year 9 student from Woodford House, is in a critical condition after being put in a drug-induced coma in Hawke's Bay Hospital on Wednesday.

Claudia first felt unwell last Saturday, the first day of the school holidays, and on Monday had a sore chest so her mother, Caroline Teague, made an appointment with the family's GP for the next day.

By the time of that appointment Claudia's condition had deteriorated and the doctor diagnosed her with influenza and prescribed Tamiflu, but that night she had difficulty breathing so on Wednesday saw her GP again.

She was given oxygen and taken by ambulance to Hawke's Bay Hospital where she was admitted to the intensive care unit and that night put in the drug-induced coma.

Early Thursday morning the family was told Claudia needed to be flown by air ambulance to Starship so she could be put on ECMO life support _ a machine that keeps a patient alive when their own heart and lungs are too stressed to do the job.

Claudia's parents, Caroline and Roger, and sisters, Harriet and Georgia, are staying at Ronald McDonald house.

They say in the blog which they have set up to track Claudia's progress that had she not been put on the ECMO machine that day she would not have survived.

Swine flu has been confirmed and it's thought that while her body was trying to fight the new virus a secondary bacterial infection attacked her heart and lungs.

Claudia is also on dialysis because her kidneys are failing.

``It will be a long battle and as we start this new day Claudia needs a miracle to survive this,'' they wrote on the blog.

A 61-year-old woman has become the fourth person with swine flu to die in NSW.

Health authorities are also working to determine whether there's any link between the virus and two other recent deaths at a Sydney hospital.

The woman, who had underlying medical conditions, died at Lismore Base Hospital on Saturday with subsequent tests confirming she had H1N1 influenza, NSW Health said.

Since the woman's death, two more people with suspected swine flu have died in NSW.

"Two people have died following influenza-like illness in Royal North Shore Hospital. However, H1N1 has not been identified in the patients at this stage and tests are still pending," NSW Health said in a statement today.

"These are two unrelated men, aged in their 30s and 40s, who were being treated for other conditions in intensive care.

"These two patients have been referred to the coroner."

The Lismore death comes after the death of a 27-year-old man on July 4.

He was reported to have been suffering multiple "underlying medical conditions" along with swine flu and died at John Hunter Hospital at Newcastle.

One day earlier a 57-year old was diagnosed with the virus and died the same day at Westmead Hospital in Sydney's west.

A 45-year-old man was the first person to die after testing positive to the swine flu.

Since the epidemic began in NSW, about 346 people have been admitted to hospital, with 50 of these requiring admissions to intensive care units, NSW Health said.

In Australia, 21 people with confirmed swine flu have died, with 2029 people testing positive to the virus in NSW.

People with underlying medical conditions who develop severe flu-like symptoms are encouraged to seek medical

Does anyone know why the WHO H1N1 pandemic hasn't been updated for the past several days? Usually, they updated every 2-3 days. Although I have come to believe that their numbers are seriously misconstrued, I'd still like to see what they put down for the world to see.

If all the talk is correct, about the swine flu and vaccination being an attempt at depopulisation of the world, surely it can't be successful. Those who readily accept the vaccine, will be those people who would ultimately be more willingly herded by the NWO. In accepting it, they're demonstrating their belief that the government have got their best interests in mind. All of those who refuse it, are potentially the downfall of NWO as we will be doing everything in our power to ensure they don't succeed and always questioning their motives. As we are in their 'danger' group, how will they then act to control us? What if this isn't an attempt at depopulisation but an exercise for them to determine who are a risk to them? If the vaccination becomes mandatory, they will have a record of all those who willingly submitted to it, and who have outright refused. Surely it would make more sense for them to target us than anyone else who have proven their trust?

Apologies if this has already been mentioned, there's so many posts it'd take me forever to read through them all!

Baby dies in Spain after swine flu claims mother

MADRID - A glaring medical error claimed the life of a baby born prematurely to a woman who was the first person in Spain to die of swine flu, a hospital official said Monday.

The infant boy was delivered June 29 via Cesarean section as his 28-week-pregnant mother's condition worsened. The 20-year-old Moroccan woman died the next day, and doctors later said the baby did not have swine flu.

The child died Monday after a member of the nursing staff at the neonatal care unit of Gregorio Maranon Hospital in Madrid fed the baby using the wrong technique, the hospital's managing director Antonio Barba told a news conference.

London school child and GP die of swine flu

An apparently healthy six-year-old London girl has died of swine flu within hours of being taken to hospital.

Chloe Buckley, from West Drayton, is the first child in Britain without underlying health problems to be killed by the virus.

A doctor in Dunstable in Bedfordshire — a hotspot for swine flu — has also died after contracting swine flu. Michael Day, 64, was taken to hospital on Saturday and died the same day. His patients are being contacted to screen them for the H1N1 virus. Chloe died at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington a day after her GP is reported to have wrongly diagnosed her illness as tonsillitis.

It is alleged that Chloe was taken to her GP with a sore throat on Wednesday but was sent home without being prescribed antiviral flu drug Tamiflu. Chloe's condition deteriorated overnight and her parents Michael, 40, and Jacinta, 37, took her to Hillingdon Hospital in Uxbridge on Thursday morning.

She was transferred for emergency treatment to St Mary's but died a few hours later. She was due to celebrate her seventh birthday on Friday. Sara Benn, headteacher of St Catherine's RC primary school where Chloe was a pupil, said today: “It is impossible to put into words the sorrow that the whole school feels in such tragic circumstances.
